Because he has killed all the ones who don't support him?
No because he is genuinely loved by his people and the people are acutely aware that if Assad losses this war that they will end up in just as much of a state as Iraq and Libya.

So how many missiles did Russia shoot down? Do we have a good count of how many hit and how many didn't?

Russia says one third, the United States says zero, so the truth is probably about a dozen. What I want to know is whether the aircraft involved actually entered Syrian airspace. No-one is saying.

The B-1s used launched from Qatar. There is no reason whatsoever for them to fly all the way around Syria, and back around to Qatar and drop GBU-38s from Lebanon when they have other long range weapons that they could launch from the direction they were coming from. The F-16s out of Aviano were more than capable of dropping GBUs.
